For those interested, the Multnomah ended up being 120cm x 45cm after blocking :-)
I'm back at knitting Hexipuffs. I challanged myself to knit 10 for the Modular Relay in Ravellenics and ought to finish the last one tonight. That'll bring me to a total of 50 hexipuffs out of the 80 I need to knit for Henni's rug. I'm getting there... slowly but surely ;)
However, while looking through the Modular Relay on Ravelry I found my new addiction. Remember how I didn't know what to do with the rest of Tami's yarn? I found my answer:
Megan's Puzzle Pieces. I could not resist them, so now I know what to do with all my left-over fingering weight yarn for the foreseeable future.
Left-over weighted yarn is a different matter altogether. Still haven't figured that one out ;)
My nieces and nephews are slowly discovering that I knit. I've knit a shawl for my sister, and Monday she went out to buy yarn for some gloves and a cowl as well. My nephew found some yarn he really liked, and asked my sister if I could knit something for him.
"What would you like?" she asked.
What's a mother to do - she calls up Auntie Ria and asks if she can knit a dragon. I'm not too adventurous when I don't buy the yarn myself, but thanks to Ravelry I found this Dragon hat and will of course have to give it a try. Hopefully it'll fit his request ;) But I love how kids just assume adults can do ANYTHING ;)
